Hurinenko & Paquet Studio to Close

After 14 years of teaching together at the Hurinenko & Paquet Studio, Jeff and I have decided to dissolve our partnership and pursue our own directions at the end of the Fall semester.

Life and lease issues have brought us both to think about what is next for each of us and there is nothing but warmth and gratitude for the opportunity to both work together as well as with the scores of students who have come through our doors.

For me I simply want to say "thank you" to Jeff for our friendship and keeping the bar high for the students.

To the students, thank you for the honor of working with you all.

As to what is next: as soon as I figure it out, I will let you know.

I do know I will be teaching in some capacity.

New Article in The Artists Magazine: Bigger is Better

Who can argue with a title like that? Honestly, it was the editor's idea! This is the first article I have written and it was a great experience. It chronicles the trials, and tribulations of attempting large-scale works outdoors and some useful tips to make your attempts a little easier. Slated for November issue.
